Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.
27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 29 months — so you have one year to come up with an answer.Every statement in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

I believe if the west is to take in refugees, they should remove all children from the so-called palestinians from the child abuse they suffer there; it is child abuse to raise your child to hate and idealize suicide and murder.  Bring them to the west where they stand a change of growing up with Judeao-Christian values - the values that make the difference between their lives and ours in the West.   The so-called palestineans were mostly Egyption and Jordanian refugees in need of tents, roughly 700,000 of them.  Around the same time 800,000 Jews were kicked out of middle Eastern areas and made refugees.  Germany took in a milliion refugees just in 2015.   The Jews didn't stay refugees; they made something of themselves. Those coming to Germany will certainly not stay refugees; they will go on with their lives (perhaps by taking Germany :-)).   But generations later sicko Islamofascists keep feeding a lie called "palestine people" which does nothing but (intentionally) keep those poor useful idiots in a state of perpetual cannon fodder, feeding them hate so they will abuse their children by feeding the poor little ones hate.  It is criminal and sinful .... even satanic.    I'd say let's take children, and only children from these countries - and never let their parent come.    Cubans in the face of Castro put their children on planes, on many planes, to get them to freedom (Operation Pedro Pan or OperaciĆ³n Pedro Pan) was a mass exodus of unaccompanied Cuban minors to the United States between 1960 and 1962. Created by the Catholic Welfare Bureau headed by Father Bryan O. Walsh, the program provided air transportation to the United States for Cuban children. This operation was the result of wary parents under the newly instated Castro Regime who did not want to give up their parental rights to the Cuban government. Largely unpublicized for fear of being viewed as political propaganda, this underground operation eventually became the largest recorded exodus of unaccompanied youth in the Western hemisphere.

Many Germans welcome Syrians because they believe they are better educated, speak English, are more cultured and in general more likely to pursue an education and improve their country.   At least this is what I've heard said and have read in the local opinion posts.    Great for them maybe.  But why would WE the People take bring them to the USA except in line with our own interests and priorities?  Are they being persecuted for being Muslim?    I am for helping the victims of religious persecution so I am 100% for helping any Christian or Jew from barbaric, genocidalor threat.  Or others, as long as they don't come with a religion that is openly hostile to the culture and founding principles of the USA, and middle Eastern Islam does come with that threat.   To accept Muslims from countries that hate Israel and have neither a culture of religious tolerance nor respect for basic human rights, in particular those of women - that is just working to liquidate your own civilization - something we should NOT DO.

If the majority of Syrian Muslims were loudly known to be vocally and bodily active in the fight against Islamists, Islamism, Islamofascism, terrorism, honor killings, sharia law, the oppression of women and other anti-western horrors ..... (as they should be for their own sake) and if they were loudly advocating and acting to assimilate in the free western world (as opposed to invading and changing it) .... then, I would think differently. As it is now, they are in my eyes just cowards who instead of fighting for their own beliefs in their own and like minded countries are just TAKERS who want to take from others, abusing the charity of others to ruin the civilizations of those who were suckers enough to hold out their hearts and their home to them. SAY NO to Muslim Refugees!!!!!!! Paul moves to block visas for Syrian refugees | TheHill:

Political Satire on GOP Debate

Political Satire is not Real News.   John Young's Blog on the GOP debate is pure fiction.  None of the questions he cites were asked at the GOP debates and none of the TV and Radio personalities he mentions were moderators at any of the debates.  And, none of the alleged quotes were made by the GOP candidates.  Tragically, newspapers like the Austin American-Statesman publish such satire as "Opinion" in a section of the paper where readers should rightfully expect some modicum of truth.   So now, readers of allegedly "Balanced Views from the Left" can regurgitate these deceptively planted, wholly fabricated debate questions and answers as if they were true.

Perhaps I shouldn't worry as those on the left tend to believe this sort of nonsense to be true even when its source is clearly labeled as comedy.  Witness how many people actually believe Sara Palin said she saw Russia from her house, even though the source is Tina Fey from a skit on Saturday Night Live.

Sadly, readers of  the Austin American-Statesman allegedly "Balanced Views from the Left" did not a get a balanced view today.   On the right they discussed a substantive issue which should be of interest to and understood by all voting citizens.   On the left they published satire, void of actual substance and pawned off as information, effectively dumbing-down their audience, distorting public debate, and harming our nation.
